Dr I had a weird feeling in my brain last night... a feeling

Customer Question

Dr I had a weird feeling in my brain last night... a feeling of somewhat pressure/pulsations and it has lingered still even after I woke up. It's very mild, but uncomfortable
I've had it come and go for about a week now.
I was on Cipro,, and took a few pills of Lorezapam at times.
There was a sequence about a week ago where I drank cold water and felt pulsations in my brain and then some leg twitching/shaking for about a minute. that episode has not been repeated though.
I have been under a lot of stress and anxiety.
I smoke.
My sleep patterns haven't been regular for about 10 days now. I seem to wake up every 2-3 hours, never seeming to enter a quality deep sleep. I do have dreams though.
What might be my problem and what should I do? I am very worried about a brain hemmorhage or something along those lines..

Ive had stress/anxiety over past few weeks, yes.
I feel discomfort in head, I wouldn't call it pain
Blood pressure is normal as of last week
I was diagnosed with prostatitis and was given a 10 day course of Cipro, which seems to coincide with this discomfort
In the morning time I do feel nauseous and a little weaker.

any chance this is related to the ciprofloaxcin?

I took a 10 day course... 19 pills
Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 7 years ago.
Well, usually ciprofloaxcin doesn't causes such symptoms.
This is not serious issue like brain hemmorhage. It can be managed.
Please get it checked.

My neck is feeling a little stiffer today. the top part.

I am getting very worried, what is this?
Expert:  Robert Fernando replied 7 years ago.
This may be due to nerve compression.
Take painkiller like- Tab motrin 400mg.
Also take adequate rest, and remain away from lifting heavy objects.
